    This story is as old as human kind, very well put Rajnish. We are all looking for connection outside when the only lasting connection is within us. Wonderful haiku. Food for reflection.10 (Report) Reply

    Very rightly you highlighted here the very confusing mind of the human being who are always with some apprehensions, questions and doubts. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Yes, this conflict of opposing thoughts leave us often in confusion! Who can say if someone is close to us even if he/she stays so close physically! Great Haiku! As Asim has pointed out, kindly check the middle line which should have only 7 syllables! But rules shouldn't be a great constraint! (Report) Reply

    Truth of life. Some being nearby doesn't mean he/ she is near. Heart is the real existence. If the heart is far everything far. The body is only an animal. (Report) Reply
